Rock ‘n’ Roll Paradise will put on a jumping jam-packed show at the Lowther Pavilion this weekend.

Audiences should expect a ride through the great days and, most importantly, the sounds of the 50s and 60s.

This year, unbelievably, saw the 55th anniversary of the plane crash that sadly killed Buddy Holly, Big Bopper and Richie Valens on (February 3, 1959).

These legendary artistes and many others will be celebrated on Saturday night.

The talented cast brings to life the spirit of the era, reminding all why this music stands the test of time.

The mighty Big Bopper, portrayed by John-Simon Rawlings, is compere on the evening.

He will introduce Tim Worrall as Jerry Lee Lewis, firing on all cylinders, with hits such as Great Balls Of Fire.

Lars Young will send shivers down your spine as Roy Orbison on classics including Only The Lonely.

Gavin Stanley brings the effervescent Eddie Cochran to life, every teenage girl’s heart-throb, with Summertime Blues and Three Steps To Heaven.

The great Buddy Holly is remembered with Spencer Jordan filling the infamous glasses and taking us back to Peggy Sue and Oh Boy.

There is also a concert within a concert, Richard Atkins recreating the later performances of Elvis.

Tickets £21, seniors £20, box office 01253 794 221.
